October Trees
~ Howie Good

I see them out my window,
grinning, angelic,
committed to the outrageous thing,
to be alive in spaces
that are designed to kill them.

A Meeting
~ Steve Klepetar

i

Because times were bad,
I think he came to comfort me
on an October day filled with light.

ii

He had been gone so long
into that silent world
that his face was gray,
his hands wrinkled and cold.

iii

He spoke softly, and his words
rose like smoke in the clear air.

iv

He touched me on the shoulder,
smiling sadly,
while outside some young men
gathered leaves into piles,
loaded them into pickup trucks.

v

A few birds twittered in the trees,
the small pond glittered in the sun,
and together we felt the earth
as it stretched a little,
yawning like someone
who had been up late the night before.

Shiny Objects and Ancestors

The article is brief, but it does give credit where credit is due. The box of talismans and charms is the property of one of ten people found together in the ruins of Pompeii, all of whom are women or children, in a room in the servants’ quarters of a family home.

The scientists speculate that some of the objects were for personal adornment, but also acknowledge that many of them would have been used for magical purposes. None of the objects are made of gold or precious stones, so the archeologists conclude that the box belonged to a servant or slave, rather than a member of the family which owned the house.

Next time you look at your charm box (or bag, or five pound can), stop for a moment and consider your magical ancestress, and see if you can feel a connection to her work in providing hope and comfort nearly 2,000 years ago, much as you provide hope and comfort for those with whom you share your magic today.
